The pattern for the hat in yesterday’s post is up over at my pattern blog: http://sabraspatterns.wordpress.com/2009/06/12/summer-hat/
It’s a very quick project, and even though it’s shown on a three-year-old, it fit even my big-headed middle daughter (and my big-headed oldest daughter).
It’s also easily modifiable to an adult hat–just add in another increase round, and probably two or three more even rounds.
Here’s a photo of the back:
Sorry for the suckitudinous nature of this photo. I was having problems with my camera for some odd reason.
The pattern for the increase part of the hat shows as a sort of star. It took me a while to figure out the best way to increase in a circle with chain spaces. I don’t know why it took me so long; it’s not exactly a unique thing to do. But I am glad to have figured it out on my own.
This is a pretty chunky hat because of the yarn used. It’s Berella 4, which I got a butt ton of last year when it was on clearance for 99¢ a skein at Michaels. I think I spent about $20 on Berella 4 yarn.
I asked Ro yesterday if she wanted a hat, and let her pick out the yarn. I need to hurry up and make something for the other two! But first I have those dolls to make for charity.
